How a brow lift can help
Brow lifts have been performed since 1910, and with every generation the technique has been refined. By inserting an apparatus called an endoscope, a surgeon can look under your skin and study the attachment of skin and muscle. What sort of brow lift you will get depends on where the sagging is. A lateral brow lift is appropriate when the skin is sagging more around the temples than in the center. An asymmetric brow lift is when the skin is sagging more on one side than on another, and a full brow lift and a three-quarter brow lift are used in slightly different cases when all parts of the forehead need to be lifted.
A brow lift may also be combined with other forms of facial plastic surgery to create an overall younger appearance. The procedure can sometimes also remove signs of aging in the area of the upper eyelid, if the skin of the brow has sagged toward the upper eyelid. Slightly different procedures can be used for men and women, if the patient wishes.
